TruStar Energy Wins Bid to Build New CNG Station in Orlando
TruStar Energy has been contracted to build a new TECO People Gas fueling station for the City of Orlando. The station will supply CNG to the city’s fleet of refuse trucks and is expected to be in operation by October 2015.
“Through our Green Works initiative, Orlando has become one of the most sustainable Cities in the country and part of that achievement has come from having one of the greenest fleets,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
In 2014, the Florida Public Service Commission created a new rate that allows TECO Peoples Gas to design, construct, own, and maintain CNG stations and dispense natural gas to fuel vehicles. Customers do not make any upfront investment, but instead pay for the service through monthly utility billing. TruStar Energy, under contract from TECO Peoples Gas, will handle the construction of the station at the City of Orlando’s fleet maintenance facility with a 43-truck time-fill fueling area.
